    Thank you RCMP for getting this poor foolish man off the road. Thank you Judge for sentencing him to meaningful time. As for Mr. Trainor, maybe he can think about his life and actions, and the risk and cost he places on others while doing his time. If you do not change Mr. Trainor the next time you may kill someone, or of less worry but still a cost, yourself. Grow up buddy, soon.
